An update..So the only reason i wanted to hook it up to the pc is to put the new version of maps on it(bought it used, had old revision). So just for the heck of it, i hooked it to the car to flash stage1 in it. I hooked it up as said in the book, and it said the same thing as posted before. I hit cancel and it says that "initializing" crap and goes back to the original screen. I cant get to the main menu even with it hooked to the car. I never had a problem with this before. I've read live boost with it and so on. Unbelievable, what a piece.
